Re: leaving your car
- Tips 4 leaving car parked 4 extended period?

Leaving the gas tank full will help avoid the problem of condensation
accumulating in it and messing up the gas line and carburetor or fuel
No need to worry about the oil, though if it's due for a change getting
that done before parking it will remove most of the sludge that would
otherwise settle to the bottom and be harder to remove on the next change.
Don't set the hand brake, chock the wheels on both sides of at least one
wheel so the car can't roll.
Some device in the car could drain the battery, so disconnecting it will
prevent that. On the other hand you'll lose your clock's memory as well as
the radio presets and other similar things that are maintained by battery
power. The car computer doesn't need it, though. A trickle charger will
keep the battery up over that period if you aren't shutting off house
Enjoy your trip!
